Fit Body Boot Camp instructors guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals at locations throughout the world. They lead group workouts that integrate cardio exercise with resistance training and weight training, keeping sessions varied in order to avoid disheartening plateaus. Nutritional guidance supplements tailored fitness programs to ensure that clients are properly fueled to lose, gain, or maintain their weight.
Fit Body Boot Camp's clients have pretty remarkable things to say about their success: one man traded 100 extra pounds for a six-pack, and a bride-to-be had to have her dress taken in four times in a seven-week period. They've slimmed and strengthened their bodies through Fit Body Boot Camp's motivational workouts, which combine cardio, resistance, core work, and flexibility training. The high-energy classes are led by certified personal trainers, but the group format makes them more affordable than attending one-on-one sessions or bribing Charles Atlas to share his secrets. Despite working out with others, students can tailor each class to their own goals and ability level with the help of the dedicated trainers' modifications.
Making the decision to eat healthier and exercise more won't just help you look better, it can also save your life. House of Fundamentals founder, Dino Mosley, is a perfect example—overweight as a child, he quickly changed his eating habits and began exercising after he learned he was at risk for coronary artery disease and high blood pressure. Encouraged by the results, he went on to become an athlete, and eventually and studied nutritional counseling and strength and conditioning in college.
Today, at House of Fundamentals, Dino is helping others turn their lives around. He instills his simple motto, "train hard, eat healthy", through interactive programs, including 60-minute functional training workouts that blast calories and tone muscles. He also offers one-on-one training sessions that address client's individual goals, whether they want to lose weight, boost agility, or work more leafy greens into their diet or amateur magic acts.
Using a wide range of fitness strategies, Thomas Tadlock knows how to achieve desired results. During his Express Results boot camp, participants burn calories while bouncing from spring-loaded floors, vaults, and trampolines. They also tame balance beams and utilize other gymnastics equipment over the course of the one-hour, high-energy sessions. To assist those that can’t attend his classes, he offers Skype training programs and DVD courses, as well as an MP3 coaching system.
The origin of Team Appleby Fitness is a tale of two Applebys. Steve Appleby grew up in Southern California, and led a very active lifestyle until the age of 17, when he lost his leg in a motorcycle accident. Determined, Steve rehabilitated and transformed himself, eventually making a career out of helping others do the same.
Tanya Appleby, meanwhile, hails from Northern California. For awhile, she led an inactive, unhealthy lifestyle. Then she met Steve in 2000. Inspired by his story, she, too, underwent a transformation, eventually dedicating herself to helping others just as Steve had years before. Today, Steve and Tanya both boast multiple certifications, including personal training. They combine their decades of experience to offer a variety of training programs, assisting clients in weight loss, muscle training, endurance training, and more.
You won’t find any treadmills or ellipticals at Bear Flag CrossFit, just 4,000 square feet of iron bars, weights, rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and kettlebells. Beneath an American flag and a California flag, CrossFit-certified trainers Eric Schubring and Will Hurst lead squads of athletes through each Workout of the Day (WOD). WODs never repeat and incorporate exercises such as Olympic weightlifting, body-weight exercises, heaving kettlebells, and rowing—all of which are based on CrossFit’s dogma of varied, functional fitness.
